    Hey fellow bhws.

    I'm trying to build a website but i have some questions if you are kind enough to help me.


    1) Is there any way i can tell if a photo i find on G is protected by copyright or not?

    2)Any tips for the onpage Seo for such a website? (only photo galleries)

    3) Can you please recommend me any free wp themes for this project?

    4) Let's suppose i will just scrape photos and post them on my website, can i get in trouble if someone files a dmca? Or they will just ask me to remove the photos?

    5) Any plug-ins you can recommend for such a website? I don't know any..

    Thank you all for taking the time to read this.

    Cheers!

    In general, no, not without spending alot of time on each image. However, as long as your responsive to DMCA requests I would not worry to much about this.
    2)Any tips for the onpage Seo for such a website? (only photo galleries)
    meta-tags/image descriptions.
    3) Can you please recommend me any free wp themes for this project?
    no. Google bro.
    4) Let's suppose i will just scrape photos and post them on my website, can i get in trouble if someone files a dmca? Or they will just ask me to remove the photos?
    a dmca is a take down request. Any kind of legal/court issues arise after that.
    5) Any plug-ins you can recommend for such a website? I don't know any..
    Not off hand no.

    A site with scraped photos from Google would not be deemed an Authority site.

    My suggestions is NextGen Gallery as the plugin.I used it ...and pretty much satisfied.but scraping images is not safe for authority website.Most of these images are protected under copyright and you do NOT have the legal right to use them.

    Don't listen to the kids above.

    Use Google image custom search with creative commons

    1) not really.. what's the source of your photos?
    2) description, keywords .. as you usually do for a website. I assume the pics have a caption and tags
    3) easy-image-gallery
    4) They will send a dmca and you will remove them. If they send too many dmcas to hosting they will shut you down eventually. Perhaps look for hosting that ignores that.
    5) 3)
